Migration of Erlang/OTP test suites to Common Test

Hi everyone,

As some of you have noticed, all of the test suites for Erlang/OTP have
been converted from the Test Server format to the Common Test format.
The tests can still be run using our test wrapper ts (see ts:help() for
details about it) and now also using the ct_run command line utility
(see https://github.com/erlang/otp/wiki/Running-tests for details about
that). 

The migration is dependant on the latest dev version of Erlang/OTP so
when running test suites with the new Common Test test suites, make sure
that you are using the latest dev version of Erlang/OTP as well.

If you have any questions about anything regarding Common Test, the new
test suites and test runner, and cannot find the correct section in the
Common Test documentation, just send me an email and I will point you in
the right direction. 

Also as you explore the wonders that are the Erlang/OTP test suites,
feel free to add more information to the github wiki
( https://github.com/erlang/otp/wiki/Running-tests ). 

Happy testing,
Lukas Larsson, Erlang/OTP team
